    A single vehicle crash in Kern County Monday afternoon has left four teenagers from Oakland dead.

    All of the dead were 18 and 19 years old. Three of the four had the same last name, according to the Kern County coroner. It is believed they were cousins. 

    The coroner said Maria Moa, 17, David Moa, 19, George Moa 19, and Rachel Fisiiahi,
    19, died when the car they were in lost control and rolled multiple times while on SR 58 in Kern County just outside the city of California City.

    Police said George Moa was driving a 2004 GMC Yukon when he lost control while traveling westbound on SR-58. It was the only car involved in the crash.

    The vehicle rolled multiple times, according to investigators, who said two of the occupants were ejected from the vehicle. All four died at the scene.

    A fifth occupant survived the crash and was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital. That person's name was not released.

    Police did not list a possible cause for the crash. There was no mention of speed or if there was any evidence drugs or alcohol at the crash scene. The crash happened at 1:55 p.m. Monday.

    A spokesman for the Oakland Unified School District said at least one of the victims was a recent graduate of Castlemont High School.  Spokesman Troy Flint said the district has made counselors available to students who are upset by the tragedy.
